Slutwalk DC: Taking a stand against victim-blaming


With messages on signs, t-shirts and scrawled across their bodies, women and men marched from the White House to the Washington Monument on Sunday morning for Slutwalk DC, a movement aimed at protesting the culture of blaming victims and survivors of sexual assault. From the Washington Post:

“The first SlutWalk was held in April after a Toronto police officer suggested that women should avoid “dressing like sluts” to stay safe. Since then, SlutWalks have been organized in cities across the globe.”
